in florida and two points in virginia. then you look at the romney mini surge in the nonbattleground states, maybe romney does have some momentum. think minnesota, michigan and pennsylvania. but then you have to look at the campaign body language and it's hard not to con chewed that r romney's campaign is acting as if they believe they are behind at least when it comes to the state of ohio. for starters, the romney campaign likely would not be airing this controversial jeep ad if they believe they were winning. both chrysler and gm are firing back at romney. chrysler ceo said in a statement jeep assembly lines will remain in operation in the united states and will con sstitute th backbone of the grand. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. a gm spokesman told the detroit news, quote, we've clearly enter ed some parallel universe during the last few days, no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish the record of creating jobs in the united states. remember, this new romney jeep ad claims that all factual statements in it, the implication is different, but the
megyn: you can hear governor romney going through his five-point plan in the critical state of florida, that is essential to any route to the white house for him, no accident he is there. listen, we appreciate you being with us on this important news day. there's a lot going on these days, and we'll be with you throughout the days and weeks as we head into -- well, days now as we head into the big day tuesday. i'm megyn kelly, thanks for watching. here's mr. shepard smith and studio b. >>shepard: residents of a new york city neighborhood that burned to the ground during the storm, those pictures are just unbelievable how there. they returned to find that there are no homes. we will speak to a man who witnessed the fire like. the new york stock exchange re-opened today. all the fears of gloom and doom and a huge sell off, it did not happen. it was the longest weather-related shut down in more than a century. a huge news day all comes unless breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b." first from fox at 3:00 in new york city, the storm has left nothing but the tremend
, quote, governor romney believes that states should be in charge of emergency management in responding to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdiction. that's from his spokesman, ryan williams. is this a problem for him, susan? >> well, i think it becomes an issue for him because of what he said in that primary debate that john king moderated where he was asked specifically about fema. he said anything that the federal government does that can be transferred to the states are better yet to the private sector. that's the right direction. so it leaves open the question of exactly what role he sees for fema. fema has been a controversial agency such as their delivery of services after katrina. however it's pretty popular when it comes in and helps and picks up the costs in the aftermath of disasters like this one. so i think it's a question that i would expect governor romney feel that he needs to say some words about. maybe today about what role he would see for the federal government for fema if he were president in natural disasters like this one. >> all this goes back to w
with evens in three battleground states and governor romney is crisscrossing the battle ground state of florida today. he is beginning speeching by urging americans to donate to the storm relief effort. >> they are going through trauma in a major part of the country the kind of trauma you have experienced here in florida more than once and it is interesting to see how people come together in a circumstance like this. >>shepard: he is right. both put their campaigns on hold as sandy slammed into the coast. yesterday, governor romney spoke with what agoers describe add a storm relief event in ohio but he back in florida today as i mentioned where the presidential race is neck and neck. carl cameron is live in karl gables florida. >>carl: they are back, mitt romney's hiatus ended after hurricane sandy and he has been cautiously but ramping up the rhetoric. there have been plenty of references to assist and encourage people to make disaster relief donations but the rhetoric has increased. he has not mentioned president obama by name on the campaign trail but the message is pretty clear,
to take virginia. this is a state romney really needs to win. i've given romney north carolina and florida, swing states and ohio, romney colorado. give obama ohio and new hampshire. i think the point i want to make about this map is a broader one and it's a criticism and an expression of bafflement about the romney campaign strategy. if you look at that map, to win to get to 270, they have to win virginia, florida, north carolina. got to win colorado. putting that together, pick off ohio or some combination of wisconsin and plus new hampshire, iowa, nevada. a combination there and the polls out of ohio and wisconsin, not looking good for romney. to me the issue is this. there are states on the map that could have been competitive. oregon, michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania and even maybe where obama had big margins in 2008 like 15, 16-point margins but you have to go back to 2004 to see, you know, a three-point race in minnesota. a three-point race in michigan. these are states, there's a lot of flexibility in these states. if romney with all the money he had and republicans had, outside m
the newspaper endorsement, state after state they went for obama in 08, now mitt romney n 12, you see this in florida, nation alltel graph in new hampshire, in that state it was obama by 9 points in 2008, he is ahead by one now. you see it in state after state, momentum is with romney. lou: real clear politics does something interesting, compare, poll, polls for today, that poll to 2004, 2008, 2008, at this juncture, president then senator obama was running six and a half points ahead of senator mccain, in 2004, bush had a one and a half point lead on senator kerry, is that instructive or just sort of an amusing glimpse at history. >> political junkies, heard those were margins of 2004, and 8 for those who like to say national polling does not amount to much this is accurate. it is the state by state polls, that is less productive. but i make a basic point about the storm, i know a lot of democrats, if you go to liberal blogs, they are all holding hands, say it will be okay, they are trying to make a political point to of the way that president is responding to the hurricane. the aver
any of those three states. so you look at the romney campaign spending resources in places like wisconsin, sending paul ryan to wisconsin to me does not project a campaign that thinks it's winning. they should put everything they have got into ohio. yesterday there was that quasicampaign/relief effort. they got a little burned for it because it was seen for what it was, a campaign event, but that's where they need to double down. because barack obama if he wins ohio, he could lose virginia and florida and still win. >> they have been doubling down. they spent all of this time in ohio and because of sandy spent more time in ohio. but if we look at early voting polling that is coming out of ohio and then florida, the president leads. is it the obama ground game that's really pushing them ahead? >> it's the obama ground game. ironically it's also the republican party. when i was in ohio and talked to voters there and called people in florida who were doing early vote there, a lot of what's motivating really record african-american early vote turnout in north carolina, in florida an
the united states, rural areas and suburban areas, you could certainly have a case where romney wins the popular vote by one point and obama wins ohio and iowa by one point that is possible, maybe a one or two-point shift but there is almost no way to look at the history of this country or try to do the more complex things, the mathematical models unlikely to have romney win the popular and have him lose the electorial college. >> rose: the sites and sounds of hurricane sandy, mark halperin and nate silver when we continue. funding for charlie rose was provided by the following. additional funding provided by these funders. and by bloomberg, a provider of multimedia news and information services worldwide. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> hurricane sandy barreled through the northeast last night, the devastating impact was wide-ranging, cities and towns were hammered by the storm that left many without power and other vital resources. here are some of the sights and sound of the storm as scene on cbs this morning.
. second, ohio is a pretty populist state, a pretty anti-wall street state, and governor's romney position in a state that is worried about outsourcing and competition with china, all of those themes have been teased out by the democrats in a way that may be disproportionately affecting ohio as to nationally and in even in some of the other battle ground states. >> rose: where is the momentum? >> well i think there are three possible out comes right now, close obama win, close romney win or big romney win and if you talk to some republicans, both connected to the campaign and one step away from the center of the campaign they are starting to talk about the possibility and you see in the republicans movement into pennsylvania, minnesota, and perhaps michigan the possibility that they are not just trying to hedge their bets or trying to expand the map out of desperation but a real belief this thing could be bigger, an oregon polls that show the shows the race close, certainly closer than the president won four years ago i think the momentum is with romney and the obama people are not just sp
obama maintaining a lead in swing states including florida, virginia and in ohio obama leads romney 50 to 45% among likely voters. he also has a huge advantage when it comes to early voters. among those who have already cast their ballots in the state, 60% of ohioans favor the president while only 34% voted for romney. meanwhile, team romney is pumping cash into states not expected to be competitive at this stage. the governor's campaign says it is seeing a resurgence in michigan, pennsylvania, and minnesota. the obama campaign is pouring cold water on that very theory saying it shows signs of a struggling romney campaign. quote, romney campaign desperate. putting up ads in pennsylvania and minnesota, prove he's struggling to find a new path to 270. that prompted the romney campaign to respond with a tweet of its own, spokesman ryan williams, quote, nervous. obama campaign says minnesota and pennsylvania aren't battlegrounds but running more than 1.1 million in ads there. the baaing and forth on twitter, ben. who to believe. i'll say this. minnesota is a blue state that bill clinton di

of does romney win the popular vote because the president underperformance in some of his stronger states while the president could still win the electoral college. there's lots of scenarios here but in essence the race has been frozen and here we go, it's going to get kicked back up as soon as the president gets out of his role as president only, dealing with disaster relief. >> one more word about chris christie he runs in two years and for his constituency, being able to play with the president of the united states and be bipartisan, is not a bad calling card. it's pretty essential. >> but right. it's essential because he needs the federal government. he talked about yes, they need to cut their own state budget but they need federal money for this cleanup. there's only one entity that can provide that, that's the federal government, the president. not exactly in keeping with the small government message. >> and what could be a better and bigger symbol than the picture we see right now -- >> of incumbency. >> the blue and white jet is iconic, it is what has helped most incumbents in the
that romney plateaued too low. and that they're still competitive in so many of the battleground states, either ahead or tied that there's just not enough room for romney to come back. as you well know, both sides are arguing their case for why they have certain advantages going into election day. what we know is how close it is. and so there's much that we can't know or really say at this point. >> and there's word even from some democrats in michigan that i know the obama campaign says michigan is not in play but some democrats on the ground in michigan telling us, telling me, that it is closep. a lot closer than their xlfrts zo comfort zone and pennsylvania is not perhaps in play but closer than they expected to be. the senate candidate not doing as well as expected given his registration advantage. really risks for the casey campaign with -- up against ap candidate who is from the west which is normally a casey stronghold. so there are a number of places that are a lot closer than the comfort zone for the obama team, despite their very scientifically based huge and we see now the pr
.o.p. pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. romney's home state. in the last few days, there have been a handful of polls that the gap has narrowed and romney made ground and come within the margin of error in those states and now he has begun to advertise. these are states the obama campaign is very very confident about. david action sell rod said he would shave his mustache off if he lost any of them. that's a staches has had for 40 years. tough hurdle for mr. romney to clear in ohio. in the last 48 hours or so there have been seven polls. all of them have suggested that mr. obama is up within the margin of error by a couple of points on mitt romney. most scenarios, romney can't win without winning here in florida as well as without ohio. so, one of the schools of thought is that the romney camp is trying to hedge against a possible defeat in ohio by expanding the battlefield or trying to into those three blue states. the obama campaign isn't buying it. as we head into the final six days it's very clear it's going to go right down to the wire with anybody's guess in some of the battleground st
that is being fought over. it's along the massachusetts border. massachusetts is the stated that governor romney led. so it is a very interesting area. many of the people from nashua work in massachusetts. host: who are the voters in this area? guest: new hampshire has traditionally libertarian streak. our motto is live free or die. it is a tossup location. the voters, i think they are voting for the person they think is going to lead this country the next four years. some people will say new hampshire has a summer home of governor romney and the state next door, massachusetts, where he was governor. i think that is less of a factor. i think the people of new hampshire can see beyond that and are voting for the person they think is best for the 50 states. host: tell us about the history of new hampshire being a swing state. guest: traditionally, new hampshire was very solidly republican for many years. recently, i think it is sort of the clinton 1992 phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point vict
, the storm over fema funding. mitt romney facing pressure of comments about the government program. a state hit hard by sandy clamor for what? fema relief. >>> sounds like this morning the death toll rising from superstorm sandy. 40 people confirmed dead in the united states. new york city police department says 22 of those deaths happened in the city. at last count, more than 6 million homes and businesses still without power. many of the people scattered across 17 states. they could face several days without heat. it's too early to know the cost of the property damage and the business lost. one estimate of the insurance industry puts that figure at $10 billion to $20 billion. >>> now to talk back on one of the big stories of the day. will sandy change the election? talk about crash. who can play politics with so many lost so much? not new jersey's republican governor chris christie. exhausted and nonpartisan, he'll tour the state with president obama. a political enemy who he's repeatedly praised for his administration's storm response. here's what christie said of president obama on "pie
defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just a crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonest, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the side show. joe isuzu is back. finally, let me finish with the best way to fight people who play racial politics -- get out there and vote. this is "hardball," the place for politics. jaw drop? campbell's has 24 new soups that will mak
this is of course the native state of mitt romney. you're right, i think that it's still the most likely scenario is whoever wins ohio going to win the presidency, but things are getting so weird and these numbers are getting so contradictory and no scam -bld that you have to start thinking about these possibilities about what if mitt romney lost ohio by an hair if he was to pick up a rich state like michigan then the map becomes viable again. it's getting weird out there. megyn: it was a 14 point race a month ago now it's showing three points n. minnesota it was eight points in president obama's favor a month ago, now it's as tight as 3 points. in pennsylvania it was nine points or more a mow ago, some polls are showing it now within four points and the president is sending sur gather to these states and buying ad time in response to the romney camp doing the same in those states. we had a rasmussen poll that showed romney up two in ohio on monday and a dispatch poll out of ohio showing it tied up in ohio. team obama tells us you cannot believe these numbers. this is a manipulation by the folks
. >> reporter: from the white house, president obama has been calling the governors of storm ravaged states and one of romney's key supporters has been praising the president's leadership. >> his cooperation has been great with fema here on the ground and our intelligence center and the cooperation from the president of the united states has been outstanding. he deserves great credit. >> reporter: while the president remains in washington, he's getting help on the campaign trail from former president bill clinton. >> i have worked very hard in this election and i'm not running for anything. >> reporter: clinton was in minnesota tuesday, a state where the race is tightening. he is expected to campaign in six battleground states for president obama before election day. tara mergener for cbs news, the white house. >>> goor romney pls to be back on the campaign trail today with a swing through florida. >>> early voting in the 2012 election was suspended for two days because of sandy. it will resume today in maryland at 8:00 a.m. and run until 9:00 p.m. and will be conducted in maryland until fr
and not so much the challenger. host: mitt romney will be at florida state holding three rallies. good to c-span.org for coverage. 8:00 p.m. tonight. on c-span. we will show you mitt romney in florida with the former governor, jeb bush. and joe biden will be in florida as well. coverage today around 3:00 p.m. on c-span, campaign rally in that state. and the spread the jobs report comes out, could that be a game tinder? could that be an october surprise? guest: i do not think so. over the last several months, good news or bad news, these jobs reports are not moving numbers. a big bet is because the average american doesn't really pay attention to jobs numbers. the vaguely no unemployment is high and their own personal economic situation is not good. that is their view of the economy. their view of the economy is not clear to be changed with what bls says. david job whether their neighbors have a job. -- they have a job whether their neighbors have a job. is this jobless report comes out and it is really bad or really great news, first of all, i do not think a lot of people will pay attention
about that. >> mitt romney also started campaigning tuesday but traveled to the battleground state of ohio to encourage donation tots red cross. >> romney: i appreciate the fact that people right here in dayton got up this morning and went to the grocery store and purchased some things that these families will need. >> cenk: here is a couple of problems with that. first of all, the red cross doesn't want those canned goods. unfortunately, due to logistical constraints, the red cross does not accept or solicit individual donations or collections of items. items of food, clothes need to be sorted, cleaned and repackaged and transported which impedes the money and personnel. oops. at least their heart was in the right place, or was it political--of course it was political. when people came in, press badges were titled victory rally. they may not have had time to change that. i'll give them a pass on that. romney's video bio was played. not so bad if you ask me. then the donation was required to meet romney but a lot of people had already turned in their donations or had not brought th
of our state. >> how do you think that went over at the romney campaign? then it was the president's turn. >> first of all, i want to thank everyone who has been involved in the entire rescue and recovery process. at the top of my list, i have to say that governor christie, throughout this process, has been responsive. he's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm and i think the people of the new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. so i just want to thank him for his leadership and partnership. >> as for mitt romney today, he held several so-called victory rallies in florida. at least this time he's admitting it's political. that's something he didn't do yesterday when he held supposedly nonpolitical storm relief events. today we learned that the romney campaign actually surprised some of the donations. campaign aides went to a local walmart and spent $5,000 on granola bars, diapers to put on display, all to make romney look like a leader who can
, and he still has to lock down these southern states. i think you're right. the romney people say they're in a much better position in ohio than these public polls show. if they're wrong about that, he's not going to win. >> every public media poll, willie, has to be cooking their books for barack obama. >> or assuming the electorate. >> or assuming the electorate's wrong. and if the electorate has changed so radically in two years that quinnipiac is confused, somebody will give a desser tags on it after the election. i'm frustrated this morning because they keep telling me, don't believe the media polls. here we are a week out, less than a week out. it's still five points in ohio. i can tell you as a practicing politician, if you're down five points a week out and you were down five points two weeks out, your problem. >> and obama at 50, not at 47%. >> and obama is at 50% in ohio, willie. >> one other note inside that "new york times" poll, conventional wisdom is obama would struggle with white working-class voters in ohio anyway, not in virginia. but in ohio he's even with romney amo
continues, let's not forget this presidential election, mitt romney, back on the campaign trail in a key battleground state. but the big question tonight to a whole lot of pple across a big area, will they be able to vote? questions? anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. approved!

, governor romney had to get back out on the trail. he was campaigning in the critical battleground state, especially critical for him, of florida. peter alexander is with the romney campaign in jacksonville tonight. and peter, what is it like on the trail with this pre occupation going on? >> reporter: well brian, here tonight in the state of flood, it is all too familiar with the devastation. mitt romney tempered his crimin criticism of president obama, and in fact encouraged his supporters to give what they could. this of course, came a day after selecting supplies at a storm relief event, his campaign hosted in ohio. still, as the cleanup gets closer to where you are in the northeast, governor romney is questioning the federal government's role in disaster relief, last year during a republican primary debate, he argued the state, even the private sector should take the lead in terms of delivering aid. today, romney put out a written statement reaffirming the belief, also vowing that fema would have the resources it needs. one more note, there are polls out and both campaigns say they
desperate mitt romney is because he can't compete in the swing states. this is a perfect storm that hit mitt romney this week. it showed barack obama as a commander in chief. the gallup poll was knocked off. it was his best poll. it showed the two competing businesses. not only did you have chris christie out there, but you also have bob mcdonnell of west virginia, another republican surrogate, who said the obama administration's response has been incredibly fast. >> i wouldn't go that far. they came in separately and they left separately. but sometimes governors have to do what governors do and presidents have to do what presidents do. i get that. and i think for the moment, your man probably got some. john, i want to ask you, i've been reading in the newspapers -- you correct me if i'm wrong. your superpack and other republican super packs have put $4 million into pennsylvania. team obama, only $625,000. for $4 million, jonathan, you want a rate of return better than a utility executive. you want to actually win the race in that state. >> we wouldn't be spending the money if we didn't thin
. and yet here you have the president of the united states with mitt romney's chief and bombastic surrogate there, together, in a state that's been ravaged by hurricane sandy, working together. and on top of it, you have had chris christie singing the president's praises the for at least the last 24 hours. that completely blows up governor romney's closing argument for why he should replace president obama in the oval office. >> indeed. jared, it's not just this issue of bipartisanship, but mitt romney, as you know, has said, previously and repeatedly, particularly in the debates, that he would like to remove an organization like fema. >> right. >> now, not only is that highly inefficient, in terms of resourcing, but can i ask you, would it not also likely raise local taxes, because if each state is required to provide emergency assistance, then each state has to fund what the federal government is providing right this moment. >> precisely. instead of having a centralized disaster relief fund, which, of course, fema represents, each state would have to do so. by the way, they wouldn't do so
actually look back at mitt romney's comments about shuddering fema or shuffling it off to the states, or even better, privatizing it, it's pure ideological rhetoric about how any time you're kick something to the states, that's better. that's not what you want from a president in a time of natural disaster. and even romney and ryan recognized that now, as you can tell from your current rhetoric, but they really have no place to hide from it. >> jared, we're watching live pictures. the president has just come out of his motorcade. he's about to address us and make some comments. there is governor chris christie. the governor of new jersey. earlier today, they joined together in a helicopter ride above the scene, observing the vast devastation that's occurred in that area. and also, they then visited the town of brigantine, where they met with a number of local residents and members of the community. john, as i observe these pictures, we were talking earlier about mitt romney spending this whole campaign promising that he was the one person in america who could bridge the partisan divi
